The 2017 vintage:
First of all, the year 2017 gave us some sleepless nights as we were struggling with the danger of late frosts. Due to the relatively early budding, we thought that the vines would be affected by late frosts but fortunately it didn't happen. The summer months brought a heat and dry spell like never before. Especially the young vines suffered from the drought, which made irrigation necessary to ensure the survival of the young vines. Even the old deep-rooted vines suffered from the drought and it was not clear for sure how the drought affected the quality of the grapes. In August, however, came the long-awaited rain that rescued the 2017 vintage. In Fall, we harvested healthy and fully ripe grapes that resulted in a great vintage.
